I am learning to do dynamic simulation in 9-bus-system. My sav file has zero sequence data, and when I add bus fault, branch falut, unbalanced bus fault, everything is OK. But when I add an unbalanced branch fault to my network, there shows some information in outpubar. So what happen? How can I fixed this problem?

 Messages for api DIST_SPCB_FAULT_2
 Terminated due to invalid fault specification or application:   (003701)
 Invalid branch circuit "1" from bus 4 [BUS4        230.00] to bus 6 [BUS6        230.00]   (003702)
There is no path to ground at bus 4 [BUS4        230.00]   (003713)

( there are my 9-bus data and video recorded my simulation process, if you try to sovle it ,you can download from this link.

I believe there is no charging (B) for branch 4 - 6 in positive sequence or zero sequence data. For a branch with an unbalanced fault both B+ and B0 must be entered .

I confirm each branch in my data has positive sequence and zero sequence charging(B), but I can not add unbalanced fault. If you have time to test my data, I can send an email to you!
